DO FLIPPED LEARNING CLASSES COMPARE WITH TRADITIONAL CLASSES?

I. Frímannsdóttir

University of Iceland (ICELAND)
Since the late eighteenth century, methods of teaching have to a large extent stayed the same. Many teaching methodologies have been introduced and tried since that time, but we still find teachers stuck in the foreground communicating the material to a group of students who then assimilate the knowledge mostly away from the classroom.

Flipped learning is one of the teaching methodologies that has become popular in recent years as an alternative way to teach and share knowledge. More specifically it has generated a great deal of interest within in higher education. This interest has led to the question as to how effective flipped learning is as a way of communicating knowledge within higher education?

In this presentation an introduction will be given on the results of a survey conducted at the School of Education at the University of Iceland, where the method of flipped learning was tested. More specifically the research looked at how effective flipped learning is from the perspective of the students. A group of students taking the same three classes were surveyed, asking questions related to the different teaching methods. Two of the classes were taught using traditional methods of teaching but one class used flipped learning. The student graded the teaching methods and gave comments on their experience of the two teaching formats. The results of the survey will be presented, giving the perspective of students of the method of flipped learning.
